Extravagant Loft

Our task was to create an interior design for a 17-room mini-hotel. The building was constructed in 1900, which imposed serious architectural constraints. The walls are masonry, and the ceiling is 19th-century wood. The building has no hot water supply, so 1.5-tonne boilers had to be installed and hidden.

We pushed back on the natural stone to fill small rooms with freshness and air. An active wall featuring a slice of stone is an accent point of attraction and builds the whole room around itself.

The designers left the brickwork exposed. In combination with the wooden ceiling, this made the interior interesting.
The wall decor was handmade, and some of the readymade interior elements were repainted in the desired colour.
